Just for Fun: Painting with Light + Color

I have experimented for years with the technique of slowing down the shutter speed and panning my camera while exposing a shot, but to get an image that goes beyond just a blur to something soulful and beautiful is not easy! This year I finally achieved a few images that I really love.

Using a camera to "paint" with color can be hugely satisfying... It is incredibly fun to take an exposure beyond straight capture, into a whole new realm of creativity.

Some images are more abstract than others, and really start to feel like paintings, complete with brush strokes of natural color and light.
I look forward to experimenting next with printing these on fine art papers!
